3. Virginia's zone defense: Coach Dom Starsia employed a 3-3 zone in 2011 to hide a weakness — the Cavaliers couldn't play man-to-man. The zone got tighter each week. Now it's their strength with Matt Lovejoy, Chris Clements (St. Paul's), Harry Prevas (Gilman) and Scott McWilliams. With the lead, Starsia will remain multiple on defense with man and zone. If they fall behind, he must play man-to-man or risk that Hopkins will hold the ball.
